Relationships

 Communication is Key

I know you have heard it before but communication really is key to any and all relationships. So before you go and make excuses by saying things like. I'm a very private person. I don't like to share my feelings. Remember that a relationship means there is more then just you in the equation and that communication is most definitely a requirement if you expect to last. Now yes everyone is entitled to some privacy but if it is something that could affect your partner or if your partner has done or is planning on doing something that effects you it's crucial you talk about it.  That way there is no misunderstanding on either part and decisions can be made together. Oh and I'm not just talking bad or important things. Go ahead make sure you're sharing the good and everyday things as well. My personal favourite time to share is at  Dinner time. I love sitting at the table and talking about events of the day, and the plans for the next. I always feel closer to my husband after we do this. My relationship with my husband is better than ever. and it's all because we Communicate.

Love thyself First 

To start off my articles on Relationships, I would like to start with the one I feel is probably the most important one. The one you have with yourself.  You see there are so many different types of Relationships that we have and want in our lives. The Romantic ones that we have been dreaming about since we were 12, The Parent-Child Relationship, Friendships, Work Relationships. The List just continues. In all of those combinations of Relationships, there is one common denominator, and that, of course, is you. If it's your life then you will be present for each and every relationship. Will your relationships always be perfect and lasting? of course not, yes there will be some who are in it for the long haul. Then others will come and go in your Life, Either you will change and grow or they will. Not Everyone is meant to stay with you forever, some will just fade away and you will barely even notice, while others it will be a little more dramatic and it will take time to get over. Some will be your fault that they end, others won't, but you will have to find a way to accept it and move on. Out of all of these relationships, there is one that will be there no matter what, When everyone leaves you, you will still be there. So before you go out and try to find the perfect mate or best friend, maybe you should look in the mirror, introduce yourself to the person who has been looking back at you since the day you were born. spend a little time getting to know yourself. what do you like to do, where do you like to go, what are your favourite foods, drinks, animals, style etc. If you don't like who you are or what you've become. Change it. Not for anyone else but for you. Once you get acquainted with yourself and are happy being you, your confidence will soar, and then you will be able to find others who add to your life. Remember if you don't like and respect you, how do expect anyone else to. So take care of your personal relationship with yourself first and foremost, then the other relationships will fall into place. Here is to falling in love with yourself.
